Pilar Chamorro comes to UGA from Ohio State University where she completed her dissertation entitled “Pluractionality and Aspectual Structure in the Galician Spanish Tener-perfect.” Dr. Chamorro’s research deals with temporal reference and the truth-conditional and pragmatic contribution of temporal, aspectual, and modal expressions across languages. She is also interested in the semantics of plurals. More specifically, her work explores the expression of event plurality in periphrastic constructions in Galician, Portuguese, and the Spanish spoken in Galicia. She examines their relation with verbal pluractionals and similar quantificational expressions cross-linguistically.
